Strategic Thinking and Systems Thinking Strategic Thinking is also called Systems Thinking, critical thinking, solutions thinking, future and forward thinking, long-term thinking, and high level thinking.It is not analytic thinking, which is tactical, mechanistic, reductionist, and either/or thinking, one-best-method.

Systems Thinking focuses on relationships, multiple outcomes, holism and boundaries, the environment, the larger system, and feedback.

Strategic Thinking is about clarity and simplicity…

What are some of the habits wealthy entrepreneurs have that other people don’t?

Answer (1 of 9): Most people spend their money to get the most utility – fun, food, whatever. Entrepreneurs spend their money to make the most money. This one habit pretty much accounts for everythin…

XBMC BlastDavAdrianus Warmenhoven wondered what the minimum that XBMC needs to use a WebDAV server. So he scaled back all the unneeded functionality to create an easy media server for broadcasting te XBMC on any of your devices.

Flipboard for Android

leave a comment »

Flipboard for AndroidLast week Brad Chasenore asked me to quickly review the new Flipboard for Android. So I briefly wrote it up:

I have a cheap, slow Polaroid (MIDC010PR001) tablet I’m trying it on, and on there it’s pretty responsive.

The navigation is intuitive within seconds I was zooming out of articles flipping through pages. On the tab I have issues with browsers, they mostly lock up, and that happens here too. It was easy to link Twitter and Facebook to Flipboard, they are presented on the first page. However when I first tried linking Google+ the app crashed, this is could be due to the fact that the tablet is not very good. A restart proved me right, although the app was a little less responsive than while linking FB & TW. The first time I was able to add Google+, logged in, verified, etc, it didn’t add Google+ to FlipBoard. The second attempt at linking them brought up the Google 2 step verification window again, which I had asked it to skip the first time I signed up. On this attempt it linked the accounts.

Compared to the other Google+ readers FlipBoard makes it easier for me, FlipBoard plays with layout which allows me to engage with the content, and it doesn’t get in the way of reading which is what I want to do.

I did have some other issues, for some reason it had given me the Content Guide Edition for the UK, I assume it read it from my locale – language settings – en_UK. Changing this in the settings to Netherlands didn’t make a difference even though it’s a menu option and I refreshed a number of times and even restarted without result. Changing it to US also doesn’t remove the UK politics from headlining the Politics tab.

And as I said I use 2 step verification for Google and despite trusting the computer it didn’t seem to skip step two after adding Google+ a second time, or another Google app to FlipBoard.

Browsing Google+ was FlipBoard was refreshing, and I see why Scoble is such a fan of FlipBoard. I am certainly happy with it, although I will have to find the killer reason to use it for more than just browsing headlines on a Sunday afternoon.

Nice to play with, will keep.
